Horseshoe Common transformation enters next stage as part of Old Christchurch Road to close

Bournemouth Echo: Horseshoe Common transformation enters next stage as part of Old Christchurch Road to close Horseshoe Common transformation enters next stage as part of Old Christchurch Road to close

WORK on the roads around Horsehoe Common in Bournemouth is set to enter its next stage.

Part of the Three Towns Travel programme, the area is being transformed to encourage more use of the common and tomorrow, Fir Vale Road will reopen to traffic, while major construction work continues at Old Christchurch Road.

From tomorrow, Old Christchurch Road will be shut between Madeira Road and Dean Park Crescent for around five weeks.

Temporary traffic lights will remain in place at Dean Park Crescent and put in place at Fir Vale Road and the diversion route along Glen Fern Road and St Peter’s Road will also stay.

Pedestrian access to businesses in Old Christchurch Road will be maintained.

Ian Kalra, head of transportation services at Bournemouth Borough Council, said: “We recognise there will be some disruption during this stage of improvements and would like to reassure residents and businesses that where possible we will keep disruption to an absolute minimum.”

NICE picture of the Old Christchurch Road scene as it was before the planners got together to mess up what was already OK and think of the nostalgia of the TAXI waiting for a passenger instead of having to walk all the way up to the Landsdown ???

A completely pointless exercise, wasting taxpayer's money in order to put a few quid on the value of the rabbit hutches in the Lemon Building. It won't make any positive difference to people travelling through the area whatsoever, but will make a nice little earner in due course for Morgan Sindall and the BDC, and therefore all their mates.

Changing the scenery around at Horseshoe Common will not improve the appalling performances played out here most nights one jot.

But of course it's only our money they are blowing......yet again.

The only way to fix it is to crack down on all the bars down the street selling more beers to clearly intoxicated patrons.
